•    If you have been receiving DW English (HD), you don't need to take action.
•    If you have been receiving DW's English SD (standard definition) channel on AsiaSat-7, you will have to perform a channel search with your IRD
    Please search for DW's English SD channel with these parameters:
    DW English SD
    Satellite:             Asiasat-7 (105,5° East)
    Transponder:     12V
    Frequency:         4.100 MHz
    Polarization:        vertical
    Standard:            DVB-S2
•    Our German channel DW Deutsch will move from AsiaSat-5 to AsiaSat-7
    Therefore dishes have to be aligned as follows:
    Satellite:             Asiasat-7 (105,5° East)
    Transponder:    12V
    Frequency:        4.100 MHz
    Polarization:       vertical
    Standard:          DVB-S2
After changing parameters, you will have to start a new channel search on your receiver. Please choose DW Deutsch on the list.
Please, have in mind that on AsiaSat-7,  DW English HD, DW English SD and DW Deutsch will be  found together on one transponder. So make sure you have chosen the desired channel.
Please, note that DW Deutsch and DW English SD will be transmitted in DVBS2 and mpeg-4/h264 standard.
